New Chabako Project

 I found this Vogue Travel Coffee set at an antique mall last week. It seemed the perfect start for a "mid-century modern" theme chabako set. The 2nd photo is with a teabowl I made and a natsume (tea caddy) and whisk, to test for size.

The outside of the case needs polish and restitching, and I plan is to put a fresh new lining in it and make a teabowl, kensui, and sweets dish to fit.  The color of glaze I used on a coffee pot that was commission for an advertising piece would be perfect for this set.
